Vintage tasted 2009 Grapes Grüner Veltliner

Overview Grüner Veltliner is the darling of the wine geeks, a grape praised for its high acidity and bright flavors. The Gobelsburger version, while certainly zippy, has a bit more oomph than we’re used to seeing in these wines. But we like that about it. And we like any excuse to drink a good Grüner Veltliner, so we’re happy to introduce Gobelsburger into the fold.

Nose Sweet scents of flowers dominate, as well as some stone fruit and wet rock.

Mouth Here’s where the wine takes off and takes shape. It’s got the requisite acid, but then a sort of nice sweet-savory balance. It’s a meaty Austrian wine.
